Run Along Buffalo Bayou from my Casa - PM

6.84 miles, 51:26, 7:30 pace

For my second run of the day, I wanted to hit the neighborhood park but the rain and puddles made me decide to detour. I ran downtown to buffalo bayou and then along the bayou to Heights boulevard before heading home. It was a good course, making a nice square when looked at from above.

When I hit Heights Boulevard, I saw a guy running ahead of me by at least a quarter of a mile. He was trucking it, but I decided to try to catch him. After almost two miles of running I came within twenty feet of him before he broke off to another street, robbing me of my victory. Hahaha. But I was glad to be just about home at that point. The pace over my last four splits was 7:38, 7:02, 6:54, 6:28. That's not a bad way to finish up a 50 minute run on legs that were tired from a hill workout earlier that morning.

3:53, 3:52, 3:58, 3:39, 3:43, 3:49, 3:56, 3:53, 3:54, 3:47, 3:49, 3:31, 3:27, 2:08 (for .33)
